As a visitor, it is often hard to sift through the countless number of Tours in Rome. Simply aiming to squeeze in the many zones, churches, monuments, and archaeological sites can often leave holidaymakers with an understandable headache.
This post has been written to tackle this particular problem, soothing any confusion with all the information you will need when making the decision about which tours of Rome to take. Whether in a private tour, small group, or alongside the kids, read on below to uncover the best of what the Bel Paese’s capital has to offer!
Categorizing Rome’s neverending number of tours
From the Romans to the Renaissance, and the Baroque to the Millennium, exploring Rome means weaving your way through the cluster of historic moments, architectural accomplishments, and modern-day marvels.
How can you best find your way through this magnificent maze? By ensuring you choose the correct tours with local guides who can craft your experience into an unforgettable bespoke journey.
The city of the Caesars
Where better to start your tour of Rome than the atmospheric amphitheater that is the Colosseum. Our tours of the Colosseum span all of the arena’s possibilities, with our guides taking you down into the depths of its underground mechanisms, across the once-sandy arena floor, and transporting you through the famed Gladiator’s Gate.
Delving deep into the history of the Roman Empire with our Tours in Rome can also lead you to the ancient hub of the Roman Forum, past the curious Obelisks scattered across the city, and even up to where it all began; Palatine Hill.
The Rome of the Popes
After perusing the city of the Caesars, all Tours in Rome must face the Rome of the Popes. Where should this particular experience begin? At the Vatican, of course.
Driven by the will and wealth of The Papal States, this smallest state in the world plays host to a stunning ensemble of artworks, sculptures, and architecture. The key to best experiencing this playground of famed individuals such as Michelangelo and Bernini is to avoid a one-size-fits-all approach. Here at Walks Inside Rome, we welcome a maximum of 6 guests to our tours of the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums, and St. Peter’s Basilica, ensuring individualized expertise and attention.
The influence of this period evidently goes beyond the confines of the Vatican, with an abundance of artistic brilliance on show throughout the entirety of Rome. Attractions such as the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps top the lists of many when planning their individual Tours in Rome. So, why not compare this magnificent duo and live La Dolce Vita (“the sweet life”) in our very own piazza-hopping adventure inspired by the 1960 Federico Fellini film?
The story of Rome is steeped in history, but this is not to say that the city is not still evolving today. Our offerings are by no means stuck in the past, with a host of unique and unforgettable experiences designed to open your eyes to the capital’s newer influences. A selection of these more modern Tours in Rome include:
